Slow is a personal review of how Brooke McAlary had it all and realised that in part that was too much or maybe just too much stuff. This book is a guide to help you slow down, tread lighter on the earth and create a home that is simpler, slower and most importantly, works for you.
Brooke and her family gradually created their own way of living, with an emphasis on depth, connection and experiences. In Slow Brooke gently encourages you to find pleasure and value in a simpler life, sharing the practical tips and rituals that have helped her on her own journey, from decluttering to de-owning, messiness to mindfulness, from asking why to asking where to now?
Part memoir, part practical companion, Slow provides a fascinating insight into the benefits of slowing down. It will inspire you to forget about the Joneses and create a life filled with the things that really matter to you . . . slowly, of course.
"Finally, a slow living guide for the imperfect folks. If you're looking for a rule-riddled, anxiety-ridden manifesto thick on sanctimony and decree, you won't find it here. Paired with tremendous insights and joyful illustrations, Brooke McAlary's exuberant, honest words are a refreshing contribution to the slow living community. If you're seeking a simpler path, start here." - Erin Loechner, Blogger at DesignforMankind.com and author of Chasing Slow
